The Hip Hop Blvd Award


   The Hip Hop Blvd Award was created because there is a dangerous lack of Recognition given to Hip Hop Pioneers along with many talented and tenured artists all over the world. It is only fitting that The Bronx finally have their own award ceremony for Hip Hop. Our award is given to individuals that contribute to Hip Hop, past and present. All aspects of the Hip Hop Culture are included. Our award does not favor one genre or generation over the other. The premise is simple; recipients are awarded based on the vigorous research conducted by our Voting Committee. This page will list our committee members and research team. We pride ourselves knowing the integrity and transparency of our voting members are pristine. Find them below and familiarize yourself with them.

 We are proud to say that this will be a Hip Hop award supported and presented by those who live and breathe the Hip Hop Culture.   

We hope the information provided here will answer all of your questions. Need more info? You can always email us at
